    It’s possible that Chris Matthews has publicly discussed his drinking past before, but I had never witnessed it until tonight. When, on this evening’s Hardball, a winning Dem candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates started to discuss the opioid crisis, Matthews spoke up: “I was lucky not to have that [opioids.] I think I drank over the years too much and I quit.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Matthews: How can these conservatives believe gun rights are God-given and precede the Constitution?

    This makes twice in 10 days that a host on MSNBC has openly marveled at the idea that many, many Americans believe their rights come from God and are recognized in the Constitution rather than derive from the Constitution itself. How can it be that this idea is so inexplicably foreign, even accounting for MSNBC’s left-wing bias? They know the percentage of the country that’s religious; they’ve read that not-unimportant bit in the Declaration of Independence about men being “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”; they’ve read a treatise or two on natural law while in college; they’ve...
  • Mathews: Is Gun Control Resistance And Gun Ownership Because "We Really Don't Believe (Shortened)

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews asked if resistance to gun control and the amount of guns in the US is because “we really don’t believe in government” during a discussion with gun control advocate Mark Glaze on Wednesday.

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews did not receive an answer from DNC Chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), when he asked what the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist is. […] Wasserman Schultz chuckled in response. “I used to think there is a big difference—but what do you think it is?” Matthews continued. “Between a Democrat like Hillary Clinton and a Socialist like Bernie Sanders.” Wasserman Schultz replied, “The more important question is—what’s the difference between being a Democrat and being a Republican?” …

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fears Donald Trump in a similar fashion to how people feared Uday and Qusay on Monday. After playing a clip of Cruz saying he wouldn’t attack Trump, the Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman said that Cruz “is hoping that he avoids the gaze” of “the clown Terminator in Donald Trump....

    The Democratic Party is not unified and is "devolving" as various interest groups seek their own ends, MSNBC host Chris Matthews said Wednesday. Appearing on "Andrea Mitchell Reports," Matthews said the party is not unified. "It’s coming apart. You can see it, it’s devolving," he said. "And so it’s every man for himself, every politician for themselves right now." "Every issue that comes up now, they're not looking to the leadership at the White House. They're thinking, how do they save their butts politically?" Matthews said...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews expressed dismay over President Obama’s post-election press conference on Wednesday, calling him entirely deaf to the millions of Americans who voted against his plan to grant executive amnesty for as many as 6 million illegal immigrants. “The people, if you look at the polling, their problem is illegal immigration,” he said. “He says, ‘I’m going to fix the problem.’ He doesn’t mean he’s gonna stop illegal immigration. He’s not going to do anything to stop illegal hiring, which is the magnet for illegal immigration, really. He’s going to basically say, ‘I’m going to deal with them...

    Most Americans view Christmas as a time to consider such lofty things as peace on earth and good will toward men. Not MSNBC’s Chris Matthews who actually devoted his entire Christmas Eve Hardball show to mercilessly attacking eleven conservatives with assistance from a panel of some of the most conservative-hating liberals in the nation (video follows with transcript and commentary): Chris Matthews Devotes Entire Christmas Eve Show to Mercilessly Attacking Conservatives CHRIS MATTHEWS: Hello, I'm Chris Matthews in Washington. You know, politicians on the right have done some disturbing and destructive things this year. They derailed every major legislative item...

    After a year of problems with headlines about Obamacare, the Benghazi bombing, NSA spying, and the IRS targeting of conservative groups, MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Friday it's beginning to feel like a "very long presidency" for Barack Obama. "It feels like a very long presidency now. It feels like the seventh or eighth year of a presidency. It doesn't feel like the fifth," Matthews said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "It's a terrible year for the president," he added. .... "There wasn't that rejuvenation that comes with a reelection. There was no sense of 'Wow.' I think that's hurt...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews compared his interview with President Obama to Jesus Christ's return from the dead. “He came among us,” Matthews breathlessly exclaimed. “He shook my hand. He sat right next to me. He answered my questions. He restored my faith.” Matthews said he imagined that “this must be how the Apostles felt when they saw Jesus after the crucifixion and burial. I felt so privileged, so blessed to be so close to this awesomely great entity.” In order to set up Matthews' meeting with the awesome Barack Obama, American University bumped Ballet Petite’s final two dress rehearsals for “The...

    Former John McCain strategist Steve Schmidt criticized former running mate Sarah Palin for throwing her hat into the "defund Obamacare" campaign. Schmidt, McCain’s 2008 campaign strategist, told “Hardball” host Chris Matthews that Republicans need to rid themselves of the "asininity" of both Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz, the Texas Tea Partier carrying the banner for defunding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Sarah Palin wrote an op-ed for Breitbart in which she claimed that if Cruz is unsuccessful in his fight against Obamacare it will be failure on the part of the GOP “because there weren’t enough principled...
  • Chris Matthews: At Least Racists Were Honest In The Olden Days, Unlike Obama’s Critics

    For Chris Matthews, every day is a good day to attack President Obama’s critics as racists, but the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington was an especially opportune time. During MSNBC’s live coverage of the festivities on Wednesday morning, Matthews unleashed a tirade against the president’s opponents, saying that racists were at least honest about their beliefs in the early 1900s. Matthews began by sizing up the country as he saw it: “This country is divided right now, heavily divided, sharply divided between the noes out there, the ones who reject an African American president, have rejected him from...

    I am sure there will be many commentaries from the right this weekend opening with Chris Matthew’s self-righteous apology on behalf of “all white people” for the incidents of racial profiling black men have had to endure in the United States. As a Christian American black man, I feel the need to respond individually to Mr. Matthews: You can keep it! I am not interested in empty gestures. “But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden.” Galatians 6:4,5 I...

    According to Chris Matthews, pro-Second Amendment Americans are weird, not "normal," "obsessed" and probably racist. In a segment on Thursday's Hardball, the cable host played a new National Rifle Association ad attacking Democratic Senator Joe Manchin. Matthews lectured, "The gun people, they think about nothing else. And they never change their minds, never change their attitudes and never change the frickin' subject."

    Via NRO and John Ekdahl, Matthews has made this point many times before, usually with references to Horatio Alger, but it feels extra special after a long week of President Perfect completely betraying the Hopenchange ethos of his first presidential campaign. It’s not the cheap racial demagoguery that gets me here; that’s par for the course both for him and his network, where you’ll find far dumber examples of it than this. What gets me is that a guy who’s spent his adult life in politics reacts to the dynamics of ideological differences and partisanship like a college student would....

    Can you imagine the firestorm that would happen if a conservative talker called President Obama a “SOB?” On Wednesday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that:I don’t know why it is, because I’m not always partisan. But I really do have a problem with Mitch McConnell. I would like to see him get stung hard on this one. So, why do I think like that? (laughter) Because he tends to be a SOB generally? Does anybody like that guy? …

  • MSNBC's Chris Matthews: Is 'Great' Obama About to Equal Presidents on Mount Rushmore

    Although every holiday may seem like Obama Day to Chris Matthews, the MSNBC host used the date often devoted to Lincoln and Washington as an excuse to wonder if the current President is headed to Mount Rushmore. On President's Day, Matthews thrilled, "Is Barack Obama going for it? Is he set on becoming one of the great presidents in history?" [See video below. MP3 audio here.] The cable anchor, who famously declared that Obama caused a "thrill going up my leg," first declared, "I'm not talking about Mt. Rushmore but perhaps the level right below it." He later went back...

    MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews and Inside The Actor’s Studio host James Lipton analyzed the debate performances of both Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama on Wednesday. In the course of their analysis, they verged into a psychological deconstruction of Romney – wondering what he may have been thinking when he “looked down on the president.” Matthews said that it was clear Romney had little regard for Obama “as a person,” but declined to speculate on the reasons for Romney’s disdain beyond the fact that he may not “understand the Constitution.” “I don’t want to get into it, but we can...

    Everyone knows that politics can be an ugly business, but MSNBC’s Chris Matthews sunk to a new long on his Hardball program Tuesday night. Matthews’ outrage came from an ad put out by the Romney campaign suggesting that President Obama, "announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements," which, his administration most certainly did. Since there's nothing factually assailable about the ad, Matthews decided that the best approach for criticizing the spot was claiming it was "Willie Horton stuff." Of course, the 1988 Willie Horton ad was also 100 percent factually unassailable, which is why that ad...
